Heart Rate monitors

Anyone out there have a good heart rate monitor that they like. I've looked at Polars but been reading alot of bad reviews on the extra fuctions they serve to cyclists, so I was thinking about getting the $50 basic just so I can pace myself.

Search the health and nutrition forum-there was a thread about this just yesterday.
I'm partial to Sigmas myself.

polar vantage nv - more functions than I can shake a stick at and, while battery life is just over a year, getting it changed only takes 5 working days. This has to be one of the best fitness investments I've made.

currently on sale at less than cost here

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
